You need a minimum 2 GB of RAM (2048 MBs) to install the 64 bit version of Windows 8.

Whether you have a logo PC or you’ve built your own PC, the recommendations for Windows 8 include:

1 GHz or faster processor
1 GB RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

One new element to Windows 8 is the requirement that Metro style applications have a minimum of 1024x768 screen resolution, and 1366x768 for the snap feature. If you attempt to launch a Metro style app with less than this resolution (e.g. 800x600, 1024x600) you will receive an error message.

Nope, you need to install additional 1 GB of RAM to meet the requirements. In fact, it would be recommended you use the 32 bit version.
